Redigo Pro is the standard choice for a single purpose dressing, as predecessors Kinto and Raxil Star in spring barley are no longer available.
Containing tebuconazole and prothioconazole, Redigo Pro offers class-leading levels of control of seed and soil-borne diseases, including full retrieval of loose smut, and is approved for use in all spring cereals.
Bayer’s Claire Matthewman says using Redigo Pro ensures crops get off to the best start, regardless of drilling date:
“Spring cereals only have twelve weeks to do all their growing, so good establishment is essential for success.
“The healthy seedling numbers and even plant stands that result from using a seed treatment such as Redigo Pro mean crops develop rapidly, as they have the right foundations to build on.”
Fewer seed treatment options this spring makes the decision process easier, she believes. “This is a natural progression, with the older treatments making way for new products with proven benefits.”
While the Kinto use-up period ended last year, there may be some Raxil Star treated seed on offer, which must be used by 31 May 2018, she adds.
